Bush takes swipes at Obama policies (about time!)

Will Malven

In the "It's about damn time" category, former President George W. Bush came out of his self-imposed seclusion and defended his administration on its interrogation policies, the detainment facilities at Gitmo, and the promoting our economy's private sector as the likely source for solutions to our economic woes.

Go, George Go! It's about time that you came out and opposed the inane and destructive policies that this current administration is pursuing. Time for some common sense and "truth-telling" even if it is from our favorite source of humorous malapropisms.

The Washington Times has the report:

Bush takes swipes at Obama policies
Defends interrogations

ERIE, Pa. Former President George W. Bush fired a salvo at President Obama on Wednesday, asserting his administration's interrogation policies were within the law, declaring the private sector not government will fix the economy and rejecting the nationalization of health care.

"I know it's going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we're in," the former president said to applause from members of a local business group. "You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money."

Repeatedly in his hourlong speech and question-and-answer session, Mr. Bush said he would not directly criticize the new president, who has moved to take over financial institutions and several large corporations. Several times, however, he took direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his own during eight years in office.

"Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States," he said to huge cheers.

Boy the former President is right on the money here. Government doesn't create wealth, it stifles wealth creation, it consumes wealth, and it destroys opportunity.

If congress and the Republican under the Bush Administration were profligate in their spending, this new Democrat paradigm is politicians without any consciences running positively amok. President Obama tells us that we are out of money and in the next breath tells us that we need to spend another $2 Trillion on public healthcare. That's not simply stupid, it endangers the stability of our entire financial structure.

I hope Messrs. Bush and Cheney...and a whole lot more folks come out of their shells and begin to talk some plain common sense to all of this Democrat insanity.

Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
